Planetary Herbology: An Introduction
Planetary Herbology is an integration of the world’s major systems of herbal healing: Western Herbal Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Indian Ayurvedic Medicine. This unique global approach to herbalism unites herbal “energetics,” tastes, temperatures, elements, and qualities into an accessible diagnostic and therapeutic framework that is particularly applicable to clinical practice. This workshop will give the student a good understanding of how the Planetary philosophy works and how herbs from around the world can fit into many of the same categories and uses.
